Eich has previously donated $1,000 to a political campaign that supported Proposition 8. Upon Eich’s appointment as CEO, several Mozilla officers resigned in protest. Additionally, numerous Mozilla employees took to social media outlets calling for his resignation and for users of Firefox to switch browsers.
So far, Mozilla has not indicated who will lead the company now or how it plans to go forward. Over the last year, Mozzila was led by an interim CEO.
